Théâtre Lyrique (or Théâtre-Lyrique Impérial) was one of three separate 19th century opera houses in Paris (the other two being Opèra and Opéra-Comique), located on the Place du Châtelet by the Seine. The original theatre was inaugurated in 1851 and lasted for full 19 seasons until 1871 when it burnt down. It has since been rebuilt and closely resembles the original, but its repertoire no longer includes operas (see Théâtre de la Ville).
